Rally Sweden - After the first leg Martin and Michal are 10th overall.

World Rally Championship continues this weekend with its second event – Rally Sweden – and crew of Jipocar Czech National Team Martin Prokop and Michal Ernst with Ford Fiesta RS WRC is not missing on the start grid.

After the first leg Martin and Michal are 10th overall. Two more days with more than 200 km of special stages are still to go for nineteen originally presented WRC crews.

Martin Prokop describes briefly what happened today: „I enjoyed the racing today I must say. Finally after Monte Carlo, where we had to survive more or less. We avoided any big moments and I was keeping car on the slippery track. It went all quite well today and just a shame that we are racing against the clock, that is not so good at the end of the day. Commitment and effort simply does not meet the outcome that I wanted to see on the clock. In the morning we were fighting with Finn Ketomaa, who also goes on Dmack, but after some technical issues on his car, he wasn´t able to continue. Dani Sordo will knock on my shoulder from eleventh place tomorrow so there will be a good motivation to not to slow down the pace. We will also work on the set-up of the car a bit to make it more stable in slow corners. “
